why we’re here

Mayke it happen.
Mayke the difference.

“Where am I?”

A child asked with heavy eyes. Always the villain, never the hero. Possibilities and opportunities dwindling to zero. Will I save the day? Will the crowd cheer hooray? Am I seen? Am I heard? Does my story deserve words? Then it came. A brand new hero by a brand new name. From cover to cover the pages turned. The possibilities and opportunities started to churn. From zero to ten, the child believed again. In seeing themselves save the day, hopes and dreams escaped decay. And therein lies the heart of the matter. It’s truly important.

Representation Matters.

Our Mission

Create superheroes and stories that heal, transform, and inspire the world around you.

Ed Williams

Founder + Character Director (Tremor)

Ed Williams is Founder. The huggable visionary leads Mayke, architecting its vision, brand, and creative conscience to produce a superhero universe that crosses cultures and amplifies the stories and voices of the unheard. When he’s not leading the team, he’s helping to tell the story and influence the creative direction and strategies of the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN as its Creative and Brand Manager.

Tim Wasney

Creative Director Of IP + Character Director (apex)

Tim Wasney is our primary in-house colorist and artist. He defines the creative direction and standards for the entire IP including characters, environments, world assets, and more. Tim works full-time at Home Depot, using his shipping and receiving knowledge to make sure any product we ship gets there in the best condition possible.

Brent Lyles

Culture & IP Integrity + Character director (solace)

Brent Lyles is a registered therapist in Florida who brings his knowledge of psychology to help us understand our characters’ emotions, traumas, and relationship dynamics on a deeper level. A mental health and persons with disabilities advocate, he uses his own story and his older brother to bring the character Solace to life.

Spencer Bollettieri

IP Director + Character Director (Crow)

Spencer Bollettieri is Wikipedia in human form. A world of knowledge and a love for biology, Spencer chronicles, organizes, and builds the entire IP’s “bible.” He makes sure we are consistent, respect canon, and uses his science-based information to help us define how powers and magic work in the universe. He’s the swiss army knife of creators and a bazooka when it comes to writing.

Stephanie Williams

Stephanie Williams is a meme queen and a thread of comedy. You can hear her pop culture commentary on the podcast The Lemonade Podcast and get a taste of her comic book expertise on the first two seasons of Misty Knight’s Uninformed Afro.

Valerie Complex

Valerie Complex is a film critic, United States Air Force Veteran, and queen of getting straight to the point. When she’s not interviewing Jordan Peele or Brie Larson, she’s influencing major changes and decisions at Mayke and defining the world Braxton lives in.
